Fall Craft ideas...

A little inspiration from around blogland... hope your creative juices flow freely this weekend! Don't forget to link up next Friday the 11th for The Weekend Boutique!

Loved this table scape from Country Living. I'm a plate lover. You might consider heading down to Goodwill and picking up a few white plates. Find some cute craft paper or fall silhouette images to Mod-Podge over the top. You can also cut vinyl to make a seasonal decor plate collection. Make sure that your colors tie together well and don't be afraid to mix a great damask with a spooky tree outline or a witch's profile.

Looking for seasonal but not screaming seasonal? These perched birds from Woman's Day are my favorite! Find a few great shaped branches, go pick up those craft birds and glue 'em in place then spray the whole scene down with black spray paint. You might consider doing this soon and using earthy fall colors for the birds then hitting the whole thing with black spray in October!

Who can enjoy Fall without fall treats? These are from Country Living. Crafters, these are huge at boutiques! They are also great as teacher gifts and neighbor treats. I coat mine with carmel, chocolate, Butterfinger, more chocolate, Snickers, etc... eventually my neighbors get to the apple. Lucky none of them wear dentures.


These little conversation pebbles are featured over at I'm A Craft Addict .
These are great ideas for Christmas neighbor gifts or decorations for a Thanksgiving table. Think of how much fun dinner would be if your kiddos got to pick a pebble out of the jar! This family of 8 is always looking for a new way to tame chaos at the table... this idea is a jewel!

Loved these profile bulletin boards. Just print off a couple of profiles, trace them onto cork and hit that cork with spray paint. This idea would be great mounted in a large frame too.

Do you have crafts that you want to sell through your blog? Do your friends? Well, come show us next Friday and link up for The Weekend Boutique.

LOVE those plates. Great ideas!
Just found your blog, it is great. We share the same dream of a fabulous laundry room. And the "birth control" post about the ads had me cracking up!
